Would it be Scott Brown? Congressmen Markey or Capuano? Tell us who you think should run.
The Washington Post is reporting that President Obama is considering appointing Massachusetts U.S. Sen. John Kerry as the Secretary of Defense.

Obama helped add over 3 million new jobs in the private business sector, unemployment is dropping, and the stock market recently topped 13k. America is coming back stronger than ever. 3. Obama fights for middle class, Main Street Americans to keep their homes . Just this week I was…
